Back 2 Gym. Back 2 Reality.

That's supposed to sound like the corny jingle one of the big stores here in SA have and play every January to promote "Back 2 School"... except it's obviously Back 2 School...Back to reality. What an irritating thing to hear in your last few weeks of holiday, but anyway, it's not the point I want to make. The point is that I'm back at gym. Went after work, and steered clear of any upper-body exercise (did quite a bit of stretching though, which hurt) and did some leg-stuff. At least I didn't really lose any fitness, but I could feel my ribs the whole time. At least I know a bit more about what to expect on Sat... cos that's when I'm trying out for Aus again! I know I might not make it, but if I don't try at least I'll always wonder. And I'd rather be disappointed then having regret. So WISH ME LUCK... it's gonna take a miracle!!!!

Apart from that I've got no news really... It's been raining for DAYS on end now, and it's cold (well relatively cold... can't compare to Bree with her Canada weather, lol!). And of course the stairs are wet all the time and I'm a bit scared of them now. So I'm clinging to the railing like an old person when going down there (and even for going up!). Had church cell last night, and we might be going on a camp or something, which will be SOOO exciting, as I've never been on any sort of getaway WITHOUT my nebulisers or WITH my new lungs. Going to be AWESOME!!!!

So tomorrow night Chris and I will be sleeping over at my grandfather's place in Pretoria (where I'll be walking), and on Sat afternoon we'll be going to the MPH/Top Gear Live Motorshow at the Coca-cola Dome, which will be very exciting!!!! So will post again Sat evening with the NEWS.... *nervous sigh*

P.S. Oh, and thanks for those who have donated towards Annelie's run!!!! That is so awesome, especially amidst the wicked "CREDIT CRUNCH"... you guys rock.
